ANZAC Memorial Hyde Park, Sydney, NSW

The ANZAC Memorial in Hyde Park was originally constructed in the 1930’s to commemorate the anniversary of the Australian and New Zealand Army landing at ANZAC Cove for the battle of Gallipoli. The building is in the Art Deco style, constructed of concrete with pink granite exterior cladding and pink granite paving surrounding the building. Due to the financial constraints of the Great Depression, the original architects plans were not fully realised.

The City of Sydney, NSW Government and Australian Federal Government jointly contributed $40 million to renovate the memorial to the original vision. The project includes an additional water feature and a new education, research and exhibition area beneath the memorial.

Project Design Brief

The renovation of the memorial required additional electrical services for lighting and CCTV cameras. The designers wanted load rated cable enclosures with access covers in a number of sizes to harmonise with the existing historic building materials.
